Well, I recommend not using EMGs if you are going with passive ones since they aren't that great. I would go with the Tex Mex set by Fender or just go with 3 active EMG pickups since they would be fine for what you want.

well if i put the 3 emgs in it wont it be like mainly for overdrive and distortion and **** and if i put the tex mex set wont that be mainly for clean? what i want is like to be able to have puckups that sound great in both settings

ummmm how much you wanna spend? what amp do you use? otherwise you could have a stacked single coil in the bridge and have normal strat pickups in the neck/middle for cleans/blues sounds

i seriously wouldnt bother with EMG's then you might wanna look at some hot single coils or look at upgrading your amp

i dont think youd wanna put EMGs on a strat cos of the wood clashes, but that might only be for the H/Bs, yeh tex mex are great pickups, or seymour duncans [shudder] hotrails.
Why did Pat Metheney cross the road? He didn't, his hair got in the way

yeah thats true...but i prefer the glassy stratty sound of the tex mex neck tbh, but thats just me, shreddy strats are cool too >_<.
